Dijon Vinaigrette Recipe

If you’re looking for a quick and easy, flavorful homemade salad dressing recipe, you’ve come to the right place! This Vinaigrette Recipe is a variation of a classic French vinaigrette, adding mustard and garlic. The resulting dressing has bold, tangy flavors that add zest to any salad. I always keep a jar in my refrigerator, making it easy to quickly create a flavorful salad with most any greens.
